9 Critical Secrets About Implants
The Advantages of
Stability and Permanence
They offer a secure, permanent replacement, which are temporary and held in place with adhesives. Many find the adhesives to be inefficient, resulting in shifting and sliding of dentures when talking or eating.
The materials are made of medical grade titanium, a substance that is able to bond with human bone. Dentures, oppositely, are made of plastic, cast metal, and acrylic.
The post of the implant functions as a tooth root would, holding the crown of your implant in place and stimulating the jaw bone. This stimulation is critical to bone health, as the absence of a tooth root will begin a process of deterioration that slowly robs you of your bone density. They halt the degradation, preserving the bone you have. Dentures, however, simply rest on the gums and will not maintain bone health. In fact, long term denture wearers will experience changes in the shape of the bone as it deteriorates that will require refitting of dentures.
Improved Quality of Life
The confidence that comes from a beautiful smile cannot be underestimated. Knowing that you can eat, talk, and laugh without worrying about your tooth replacement will restore your enjoyment of social activities. Also, they do not require the same food restrictions that prosthetics do. You can eat all of your favorite foods again and never worry about needing to remove your teeth.
